Growing Green: Healthy Soil=Healthy Plants
Recently, the redwing blackbirds made their annual return to the trees surrounding my home. Spring has sprung. One of the top springtime questions I get is how and when fertilizer should be applied. It is a difficult question to answer without information on the soils in the garden...

Growing Green: How to Read a Pesticide Label
It’s that time of year, the pest control calls are beginning to roll in! Homeowners want to know when to treat for crabgrass, what to use for spider mites; how about spotted winged drosophila and Creeping Charlie…the list goes on and on. But before we get carried on the tide...

American Life in Poetry: Rehab
American Life in Poetry: Column 277 By Ted Kooser Here's hoping that very few of our readers have to go through cardiac rehab, which Thomas Reiter of New Jersey captures in this poem, but if they do, here's hoping that they come through it feeling wildly alive and singing at the...

Sue's Views -- Little things make PPD
For the 25th time, Morris celebrated Prairie Pioneer Days this past weekend, and it was a particularly grand occasion this year. People came to the celebration to have a good time and organizers appear to have offered enough of a variety that everyone was satisfied.

Talking It Over -- Enjoy the summer life
We are speeding toward the middle of July. Where has the first half of summer gone? It seems like we waited so long for it to arrive and now that it is here we need to really get into enjoying the season. One of the best parts of summer, for me, are the many celebrations that take...

Down on the Farm -- Summer trips
Sometime during the summer of 1970, Dad and Mom loaded sister and I up in our old car, drove to Fargo, traded for a brand new Ford LTD station wagon and without even going home to show off the new car, headed for the West Coast. That started a summer family tradition. For the next...

Commentary -- Forget guns, I'll take a cell phone
By Donald Kaul The Internet is a lot like the dreaded kudzu vine. Once introduced into a venue it doesn't merely grow, it explodes. It goes anywhere it wants, does anything it wants and generally takes over. There are some bad things about this---it eats up newspapers like rabbits...

Down on the Farm -- A perfect musical moment
There's something about Susan Boyle. The British spinster with the astonishing voice has taken the world by storm in a single week. No need to worry if her career will be a success. Susan's already brought tears to the eyes of tens of millions of people. What more could a karaoke...

Sue's Views -- Getting what a small town is all about in one, eventful weekend
Every reason you can ever think of to live in a small town happened this past weekend. There was prom, that magical night when the youngsters whom you have known since diapers show you that they are on the verge of adulthood -- and goodness knows, they are a good-looking group of...

Down on the Farm -- 250,000 and still truckin'
The magic moment happened as I crossed the Montana-North Dakota border last week on my way home from Arizona. I had looked forward to it for weeks. Slowly, the row of nines on the odometer turned over to zeros. Without fanfare, my Ford Ranger arrived at one-quarter million miles. To...

Down on the Farm -- Freedom is in the air puffs
Passing through the Orwellian world of airport security just got more surreal. Last weekend, in addition to the familiar humiliation of taking off my boots and belt, I had to pass through something called a "General Electric Entry Scanner." The General Electric Entry Scanner, plastered...

Talking Points -- When it comes to caucuses don't throw a Mitt but do get involved
The November 2008 presidential elections are more than nine months away and many of you are already sick to death of the race. How the Hillary are we going to get through this without pitching a complete Mitt fit? Mac is back? How 'bout a Mac and Coke - and make it a double! Obama,...
